Background

I had spent two and a half years teaching in an MOE-registered education centre and have taught the English Language across all Primary & Secondary levels for 13 years. My forte lies in the following:

Upper Primary:

  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Synthesis & Transformation
  • Creative Writing
  • Comprehension
  • Oral Skills

Secondary:

  • Grammar & Editing
  • Vocabulary
  • Descriptive, Expository and Argumentative Essays
  • Comprehension
  • Summary Writing
  • Oral Skills

 

Are Results Guaranteed?

An improvement in English is always the result of hard work on the student's part (or the parent's if the child is still young). Over 90% of students can expect to see a gradual improvement of results in 6 months to a year. That is directly proportionate to the effort and consistency they put in learning English and following my guidelines and recommendations. 

 

Methodology:

I assist students in overcoming the difficulties of the language by introducing appropriate techniques when tackling a variety of examination questions and bringing about an overall improvement in grades. Each child is individually assessed before a learning roadmap is created and tailored for him or her. A list of carefully selected books will be given to the parent to acquire for the child before the first lesson to aid them in improving areas of weakness and applying their newly learnt techniques. Classes are shaped to be engaging, efficient and productive.
